TOUR: Christmas at the Hermitage - take a horse-drawn carriage ride from the farm to the estate next door which at one time was all part of the same property owned by George Kalbfleisch. Mr. Kalbfleisch built the English Manor home and also added the Greek Revival detail to Winterberry's main barn along with the other outbuidings on the farm under the design of Tiffin architect, George Netcher. The manor home which will be opened exclusively to support the vision of Winterberry Farm. This 10,000 square foot home with one of only 13 Aeolian Skinner pipe organs in a private resident, will be open for personally guided, small group tours.
The house will be gorgeously decorated and you will see the main floor's Grand entry and staircase, Magnificent Music Hall, Library, Dining Room, Solarium, Breakfast Room, and Kitchen.
